Why did you become a spiritual leader and what do you love about Judaism?

I became a spiritual leader to support the integration of the spiritual and the political. To provide political, organizing spaces with a bit more grounding, heart and community care, and to galvanize spiritual people and spaces into the work of justice and collective liberation. I love Judaism because it is a religion and a practice of this world, working to make this world the most joyous, the most sensual, the most just and the most loving world it can be.

Are there specific populations, age groups, or folks at a certain life stage who you love working with? 

I love working with everyone, but have a lot of experience working with people at end-of-life, as well as with the family members of those at end-of-life. I also have a lot of experience in multifaith spaces.

What services do I offer?

  • Funerals/memorial services
  • Weddings/partnership rituals
  • Conversion
  • New baby rituals (baby naming, covenant, etc.)
  • Interfaith weddings
  • Co-officiating with another spiritual leader.
